Early Learning Cranbrook

Welcome to Milestones Early Learning Cranbrook, quality child care in Cranbrook for ages 0-5.

Our passionate educators and teachers are trained and accredited in the Lifelong Learning Curriculum by Affinity Education Group, Australia’s leading provider of early education and child care.

Here at Milestones Early Learning Cranbrook, we pride ourselves on creating strong, positive bonds with children, and providing them with the individual care and attention that is essential in early education. We nurture a lifelong love of learning through a combination of play-based and intentional teaching experiences, which helps your child develop social connectivity, emotional confidence, foundational learning, and physical health and wellbeing.

Milestones Early Learning Cranbrook has a range of inspiring environments for children to explore. Our centre rooms are set up based on the children’s current level of development and their interests. Our centre also includes a spacious outdoor play area that encourages children to test their limits, build strength, and develop self-confidence.

Our days incorporate messy play experiences, allowing children to use their natural curiosity and engage their senses. Your child will be introduced to literacy and numeracy through fun learning games, and investigate science, technology and the arts. We also offer a range of health and wellbeing activities, and nurture a love of animals, nature and the environment.

Milestones Early Learning Cranbrook provides nutritionally balanced meals cooked daily by our onsite chef, an inclusion that is unique to Affinity Education Group child care centres. All nappies are included, plus you can stay connected with your child’s progress and receive updates about their day through our Storypark platform.

We know you’re busy and that deciding on child care and early education is a huge task. We are here to help you though! Our dedicated Family Support Team is available to answer any questions you may have about our programs, services, and subsidies available to your family.

Meet Our Team

Hi, my name is Emma Dowsett and I am the Centre Manager of Milestones Early Learning Cranbrook.
I have been with Affinity Education for 10 years and in the industry for 17 years holding my Diploma of Children's Services and Certificate III in Community Services and Youth Work.

For 9 years I provided the utmost care to the babies in the nursery room within a sister Centre, and in 2022 I stepped up to become the Centre Manager for Milestones Cranbrook where I take my knowledge, passion, love and career path to deliver our outstanding Lifelong Learning Curriculum to you and your family. I have an Indigenous background within my family and hold inclusiveness close to my heart and delivered within our daily programs.

My passion for childcare derives from my earlier years around my Mum being an emergency foster carer growing up. I strived to study my community service and youth work through school where I found a passion in Childcare during work placement. Childcare provides the first 5 most valuable years to your child and your family. After 9 years in the one Nursery, I was able to not only look after the children but also their siblings and see them off to school on their first day, providing a strong community engagement towards families and their children.

As a Centre Manager I strive to provide that same level of care and passion to the families, children and educators of the service. We have a team of highly qualified Lead educators and an Early Childhood teacher who holds many years of experience and her Bachelor of Education within the sector.

Please book a tour to see our beautiful little Centre and meet the friendly team, on (07) 47 294 444.

Big Thinkers STEM Program

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) have always played a vital role in developing our Lifelong Learning Curriculum for children in our preschool rooms (3-5 years).   

The Lifelong Learning Curriculum - Big Thinkers STEM program is aligned with the Early Years Learning Framework, ensuring your child has a strong sense of identity through creating a safe, secure and supported learning experience. Your child will develop their emerging autonomy, interdependence, resilience, and sense of agency; through this, expand on their self-confidence by encouraging interaction with care, empathy and respect.
